Twenty years of empirical and theoretical research has demonstrated that basic forms of biological coor- dination arise and change due to self-organizing synergetic processes. Here we suggest, using facts and ideas from brain research and quantum measurement theory, that metastability in the underlying coordination dynamics is crucial for the creation and annihilation of meaningful information. Such information may then be used to guide, modify and direct the activities of an organism.
